Full of Surprises
Today we had friends come to the house. We do not live in a very big house so this doesn’t happen very often. Diva was initially not sure about the idea of sharing her toys with others and requested that we go and play with their toys instead. She even listed all the better toys each of her friends owned that could be played with at their houses. However, once they got here, she was very excited.
I’d attempted to set the kitchen up with some activities including play dough, chalk board, painting, and colouring. This worked fine, other than the usual arguments when all four girls wanted to do the exact same thing at the exact same time. Thankfully they all eventually settled down around the table to produce some fabulous modern art in crayon and ink.
Meanwhile, the mothers and babies were in the adjoining living room with the musical toys and biscuits. At one point I was invited to come back in the kitchen and see the, ‘art gallery’, the girls had produced. Impressed with their creative flair I entered the kitchen to see many brightly coloured pieces of paper displayed all over the kitchen cupboards. They had been busy.
While I was handing out the praise and giving each piece an in-depth critique, something occurred to me:
“Girls, how are all these pictures stuck to my cupboards?”
